Joshua Noah Dopp has been working with hot glass for nearly thirty years. As an artist his work takes many forms. Not content to have a signature style, Joshua is constantly experimenting and allowing the topic and force of the moment to inspire and inform his work. Trends apparent in his oeuvre include modernistic abstract bio-morphic forms to highly researched and studied architectural tomes on sacred relationships. The search for balance and harmony and the revealing of beauty by combining divergent and seemingly opposable themes largely guide his work. Although he currently lives in Arizona he is a traveler at heart and has lived all over the US and in Europe. His work has been collected by notable patrons and can be seen in museums. Joshua received his MFA in Glass and Sculpture from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2001, and a BA in Art History from the University of California at Santa Barbara in 1993. Joshua is currently a master level art instructor at the Mesa Arts Center. He has exhibited extensively from Santa Barbara, California to Zurich, Switzerland.
